Greetings!
To the families, friends, parents of HMC’s MIDWEEK MINISTRIES!

This FALL – HMC’s U18 MIDWEEK MINISTRIES will look (and taste) a little different. Allow me to introduce –
the MIDWEEK MEAL.

Life is busy! Hockey practice – dance recitals – school work! Work-work! Obligations! Errands! Your family is maxed out. And church, well, church can become just another ‘thing to do’. But that isn’t our desire. We want your family – your kids, teens, adults old and young – to thrive as followers of Jesus! We want church to feel like a second home, to be your second home. A place to gather with others. A place to eat. Talk. Play. Encourage one another in love. Hang out. Pray. Learn. Grow. A place to share life together and to find Jesus within community.

This year Wednesday MIDWEEK will be different. We are not running a formal KIDS or JRYo program or hosting an ADULT Bible study as we have done in years past. Instead, our midweek gathering will be centred on a common shared meal. Our hope is to give you a break and make life easier for you. Our desire is to see our community grow and thrive, for Jesus’ name sake. And we believe this will happen during the meal. After we eat the KIDS and JRYo will choose-their-own-adventure club while the adults kick-back and have desert! At the end of the night we will come back together for a BEDTIME STORY before we all go home – before 7:30! KIDS don’t worry! We still have uBUCKS! JRYo don’t fret – we will still have gym time! And we have several COMMUNITY MISSIONS PROJECTS set and ready to go!

The night will run from 5:30 – 7:30PM and we are asking just $80 per semester per family (family = any combination of 2+ people to a maximum of 8). That is just $10 a meal! The menu and schedule and relevant details are listed below. The question is:

will you eat with us?
